Newark – Friday 8.45 on The Alternative Stage
The Fourmost had its roots steeped in the eclectic 1960’s Mersey beat boom and was part of the Brian Epstein stable along with The Beatles, Billy J Kramer, Gerry and The Pacemakers and others. The band has evolved from enjoying 1960’s chart hits such as Hello Little Girl (no.9) and A Little Loving (no.6) and less popular songs as Baby I Need Your Lovin, Here There and Everywhere and a cover of George Formby’s Auntie Maggie’s Remedy.
During the 1970’S and the early 1980’s like many of its peers, The Fourmost played mainly on the cabaret circuit as it struggled to compete for appeal with disco, funk, glam rock and punk. Since the mid 1980’s The Fourmost has enjoyed a golden era as part of the wider 1960’s revival scene and now appear throughout the UK and Europe playing at theatres, holiday parks and 60’s festivals to a diverse fan base.
The Fourmost are one of the most authentic 1960’s bands currently on the circuit today, from their Vox amps and Ludwig drums down to their Italian made slim fitted suits and Cuban heel boots.
